About us


Within the gallery you'll find works from many of the leading St Ives and Newlyn School artists of the last 150 years, as well as many other distinguished artists who have painted in Cornwall. Our inventory consists mainly of traditional works with a strong emphasis on Cornish subjects. We hope you enjoy browsing and if you require further information, images or condition reports please do not hesitate to contact us.
 
 
At Hayle Gallery our philosophy is to acquire quality, original works and offer them at realistic prices.

Every painting in our collection is a carefully selected original work of art with a Cornish connection.

Our clients include seasoned art collectors, but if you are new to collecting and require some guidance we can assist you in learning more about fine art and how to build your collection.

We have a substantial art reference resource to research our paintings, and the artists and their auction/retail values are always thoroughly investigated.

We price our works competitively to ensure the customer is getting a sound investment for the future. In fact, most European fine art values have outpaced the stock market over the last 20 years, meaning that paintings have been, and are today, a very good investment.

However, whilst investment potential is undoubtably important, we believe that the biggest single reason for making a purchase should be because you love a painting's aesthetic qualities.

We are always pleased to consider offers and can normally give generous discounts for multiple purchases.


We welcome enquiries - please contact us by email: info@haylegallery.co.uk or call +44 (0)1736 758465 (Mobile 07970 790807).

Within the Hayle Gallery you will always find several offerings from St Ives and Newlyn School artists, in addition to selected Traditional (1800 - 1930), Modern (c1930 - 1970) and Contemporary (c1970 to present) works.

St Ives School

The town of St Ives became a magnet for artists following the extension to West Cornwall of the Great Western Railway in 1877. In 1928 the artists Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood visited St Ives where they were struck by the work of the na´ve artist Alfred Wallis, whose painting confirmed Nicholson in the modern direction of his work.

In 1939 at the outbreak of the Second World War, Nicholson and his then wife the sculptor Barbara Hepworth, both by then fully fledged abstract artists, settled near St Ives, where they were soon joined by the Russian Constructivist sculptor Naum Gabo. After the war St Ives became a centre for modern and abstract developments in British art led by Hepworth and Nicholson (Gabo departed in 1946).

From about 1950 there gathered in St Ives a group of younger artists and it is with this group, together with Hepworth and Nicholson (until his departure in 1958), that the term St Ives School is particularly associated. The principal figures of the St Ives School include Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Paul Feiler, Terry Frost, Patrick Heron, Roger Hilton, Peter Lanyon, Karl Weschke and Bryan Wynter, together with the pioneer modern potter, Bernard Leach.

The heyday of the St Ives School was in the 1950s and 1960s but in 1993 the Tate St Ives, a purpose built new gallery was opened. It exhibits the Tate collection of St Ives School art and related types of art and has given the town a whole new lease of artistic life.

Newlyn

The Newlyn School was a group of British painters who started the movement in favour of plein air in England, following the lead in France. The group was lead by Stanhope Forbes and Walter Langley

The main painters in the group were: Frank Bramley, Percy Craft, H. E. Detmold, Stanhope Forbes, Elizabeth Stanhope Forbes (nee Armstrong), W Fortescue, Norman Garstin, T. C. Gotch, Fred Hall, Edwin Harris, Ayerst Ingram, Walter Langley, H. Martin, F. Millard, Marianne Stokes, Chevallier Tayler, Titcombe, Ralph Todd and Henry Scott Tuke.

Walter Langley and T. C. Gotch visited Newlyn before settling there, but certainly the first artist to take up residence was Langley in 1882. Edwin Harris was next, and then Fred Hall, Bramley, Gotch, Craft and Stanhope Forbes in 1884.

Stanhope Forbes quickly became thought of as the leader, and was later referred to as the founder of the colony. Several of the Newlyn artists were involved in the establishment of the New English Art Club in 1885/6.

In 1899, Stanhope Forbes and his wife Elizabeth Stanhope Forbes founded a School of Art at Newlyn, and students there included Dod and Ernest Proctor. The second generation of Newlyn artists included A. J. Munnings, Lamorna Birch and Laura Knight.
